Sean O'Casey *

a.k.a. John Casey

Author Code: ISOC

Born: Mar. 30, 1880 - Dublin, Ireland

Died: Sep. 18, 1964 - Torquay, England

Poor eyesight interfered with Casey's early education and he left school at 14 and embarked on a series of manual jobs, mostly on the Great Northern Railway. He took part in various social and political activities and joined the Irish Transport and general Workers' Union, eventually becoming Secretary of its political wing, the Irish Citizen Army. He left in 1914 when the Army refused to support the First World War. From 1907, Casey adopted the name of P.O'Casthasaigh. After a number of his plays had been rejected by the Abbey Theatre, he finally broke through with The Shadow of a Gunman in 1923, and soon followed with Juno and the Paycock (1924) and The Plough and the Stars (1926), both of which were extremely controversial at the time. He moved to London and met and married Eileen Carey in 1927. O'Casey met and became friends with George Bernard Shaw and Augustus John and remained in London until 1938. He also made a trip to America in 1934 where he met Eugene O'Neill, George Jean Nathan and Sherwood Anderson. He then moved to Totnes in Devon where he lived for the remainder of his life. O'Casey had a very erratic career with outstanding successes followed by abject failures. Nevertheless, he is one of Ireland's most respected and renowned playwrights. His other works include Songs of the War (1918), The Silver Tassie (1927), Within the Gates (1934), The Star Turns Red (1940), Red Roses for Me (1942), The Purple Dust (1945), Cock-a-doodle Dandy (1949), The Bishop's Bonfire (1955), Behind the Green Curtain (1961) and The Moon Shines at Kylenamoe (1961).
